Ark Noir to play in public concert at ESO Supernova

Experience electronic-inspired beats & instrumental improvisation under the planetarium dome

11 March 2019

On 19 April 2019, the young Munich-based "electronic-jazz-collective" Ark Noir will play under the planetarium dome at the ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre. The group’s original compositions, which blend synth-heavy improvisation and beats, will be accompanied by 360-degree visuals, immersing fans in a unique, cosmic experience.

Inspired by artists from an eclectic mix of genres, including jazz and hip hop, the band has emerged with their own unique sound, fusing electronic beats with instrumental improvisation. The ESO Supernova Planetarium will make for an unconventional venue for this innovative young group to perform. The 360-degree dome 14 metres wide will provide an atmospheric setting in which to experience their music, promising a memorable evening for all attendees.

Performing for you will be:

Sax & EWI – Moritz Stahl
Keyboards – Sam Hylton
Guitare – Tilman Brandl
E-Bass – Robin Jermer
Drums – Marco Dufner

Though young, the band members have accrued many accolades between them, including Bayerischer Kunstförderpreis 2017 and the Kurt Maas Jazz Award 2017.

To reserve a place at Ark Noir — Live in the Universe, on 19 April 2019, from 20:00, please book online. The ticket price is 20 euro and places are limited to 109 seats.
